To decorate with gold requires, yes or yes, a point of moderation. While the same is true for most currents and trends in deco, in the case of gold this is even more evident. It is because of the brilliant hue of color, which can variegate the space if used too much.

The foyer is also a perfect place to put a golden piece like a console or a small table. You will create an original effect that will make a very good impression on the visitor. You know, the lobby is your home’s calling card.
Furniture, lamps, mirrors, decorative objects?
There are several ways to introduce gilded products into an environment, as far as decoration is concerned. If the room is spacious and bright you can choose to put some golden furniture. Those who combine golden metal and crystal seem to me to be beautiful, very mid-century modern style that raises so many passions.
A lamp, ceiling or table lamp and a mirror can also be key elements when decorating with gold. Success lies in knowing how to mix these types of elements. It bets on other materials that balance the final result. Wood and other natural materials, such as simple textiles, will be used to counteract the theatrical effect of gold.
But if you want to put several golden pieces in your living room, a good idea is to combine different finishes. That is to say, choose some in glossy gold and others in matt or aged gold. You’ll give more dynamism to the decoration.
Be that as it may, gilded decorating is the perfect way to brighten and glamorize a boring space. Do you dare to try?
